Hey everyone! Are you going to PAX this weekend? Are you interested in watching LRR and LRR-adjacent people on panels? Maybe you also want to make your hands touch our hands? Or perhaps just engage in some commerce? We can help you accomplish all of these things!

If you want to come say hi, buy some of our cool merch, or just look at us from far, far away, the best place to find us will be in Bandland, located level 6 of the WSCC.

This is the level six map.

But we don’t just have a table! We’re on a ton of panels!


LoadingReadyRun – Comedy Etc!
Join the LRR crew as we show some funny videos, answer your questions, and write a short sketch live!
6:00 pm, Wyvern Theatre

Late Night Dub Fight – “Improve” these clips!
Back for another round, it’s the Late Night Dub Fight! Relive moments from your favourite cartoons, video games, movies, TV shows, and anime, in a new and hilarious light. The Late Night Dub Fight pits panelists against each other to find out who can “improve” classic clips by redubbing them live with their imposing improv skills. No one knows what show host Ian Horner has up his sleeves, or what the cast members will say in this all-out assault on your funny bone.
9:30 pm, Hippogriff Theatre


Jackbox at PAX… Box?
Do you like Quiplash 2? Of course you do!
Do you like Jerry Holkins, Kris Straub, Nika Harper, Graham Stark, and Kathleen De Vere? Of course you do!
Well you should check out this panel and watch these awesome people play this awesome game. If you are unfamiliar, it’s just gonna be a bunch of hilarious people making snarky responses to questions while you vote on a winner live from your phone.
7:00 pm, Wyvern Theatre


The Improv Initiative Initiates Improvised Initiatives!
Rising from the most hilarious grave you’ve ever seen, the Improv Initiative returns to PAX for another performance!  This motley collection of improvisers will perform never-before-seen, never-to-be-seen-again scenes based on your suggestions! Games will be played, laughs will be had, and improvisers will compete for your affection!
2:00 pm, Sasquatch Theatre


QWERPline, Live!
A live recording and performance of LoadingReadyRun’s Qwerpline podcast—a morning show from the fictional town of Nsburg, where the news is stupid and the people are stupider. We’re told it’s like Nightvale, if you took out all the occult stuff and filled that void with raccoons and lunacy.
4:00 pm, Sphinx Theatre

Summer Vacation Season
August 22nd, 2016

Posted by Kathleen

Hey all, we hope you’ve been enjoying LoadingReadyLive, our bi-weekly live variety show. We’ve all been really enjoying making it, but not enjoying it so much that we won’t take a break.

Last week four of us took the Saturday off (there was a wedding, and some family commitments) leaving a much smaller, but much more Wiggins-y crew to put together the episode. I think it turned out great. If you haven’t seen it, check it out! Fittingly, the episode is called Understaffed.

But you know what hasn’t taken a week off? Feed Dump. This week Cameron has some helpful extremely bad suggestions for ending neighbourhood feuds.

This week’s episode of the Graham and Kathleen in Japan vlog takes us to Ueno Zoo! It was very, very hot that day, so we cooled off by paddling around in the famous Ueno park swan boats. Spoiler, the swan neck does somewhat obscure your view from the boat, but it’s worth it because you’re in a swan boat!

This week on Tap Tap Concede, Cameron and Alex weigh in on the newest Planeswalker, Kaya, Ghost Assassin and tell us about new Highlander brew tips.

And finally in video game news, Blizzard has figured out the perfect way to troll trolls. GG Blizzard. Oh also there is a new Pokémon and it is made of nightmares.

Summertime Dumps and Vlogs, oh my!
August 15th, 2016

Posted by Kathleen

If your summer has been anything like our summer, it’s been hot. Almost too hot. At least too hot for us weak, mild weather loving Canadians. I’ll keep today’s update short so you don’t have to tax yourself too much in the hot weather.

Do you dream of going on a summer vacation? How about going to a place that’s even hotter than where you are now? Japan is very hot in the summer. It’s day 11 of Graham’s Japan vlog series — we hit Akihabara and eat honey toast, which was VERY trendy last summer in Japan. It was also really good. You can make it at home, but it’s a huge pain in the butt.

Speaking of Graham and vlogs, the arms race is on between James and Graham, and Graham has won this round by putting up another update! Follow Graham and I as we explore aged hippie heaven, Salt Spring Island.

Feed Dump this week could have had a lot of titles, but really “Beej, no” ecapsulates so much of what I wanted to say. Beej is a delight on Feed Dump, really.

And finally, CheckPoint weighs in on the year’s chillest game, No Man’s Sky.

Hot, Wet, Canadian Summer
August 8th, 2016

It’s August in Canada, which means it’s summertime! And that means it’s warm and pleasant, and it’s time to play organized sports!

However, here at LoadingReadyRun HQ, disorganized sports are more our speed, so we put together our own “Summer Games” and packed them with the least organized “sports” we could think of!  Then we turned them into a whole special episode of LoadingReadyLive! Witness the majesty of our athleticism. Or laugh when we fall over. Your call.

In an almost unprecedented show of timeliness, the July 2016 Loading Time Digest is also done, so if you want a behind the scenes look at everything we did (and a look at our sweet new LT rig), check it out.

Sidewalk Slam is also totally caught up on July 2016 — well, totally caught up on all the July episodes of Raw. Graham points out that he and Adam have yet to talk about Battleground, which means they’re not technically done with July content, but that ruins my segway between talking about these two videos, so I guess there’s no reason for any of this. Maybe I’ll just link to Sidewalk Slam now.

Changing topics, this week on Tap Tap Concede, Cameron, Graham and I weigh in on the flavour of Eldritch Moon, and spoiler, there’s a lot of it!

Feed Dump chronicles the exploits of several residents of Florida this week, but unlike most episodes of Feed Dump, we talk about a Florida man who didn’t do anything wrong. Don’t worry though, we immediately follow up with a story about two people who were REAL stoned.

The adventures of Graham and Kathleen in Japan continue with Episode 10 – Get to Tokyo. Because what would a trip to Japan be like without a trip to Tokyo? And what would a trip to Tokyo be like without a trip to Snoopytown? And what would a trip to Snoopytown be like without buying at least $50 worth of stuff? Madness, all of it.

And finally, before you head out to the beach, don’t you want to know what’s going on in your town? This man who presumably has a name is here to tell you all about it! Stay warm!
